Kristin graduated from the Renton Technical College Massage program in 2010. She started her massage practice working with injury clients and became increasingly interested in how trauma affects the body. She sought out educational opportunities designed to learn how the nervous system and muscular system work together to facilitate healing.
She discovered and began training in Craniosacral Therapy and saw dramatic changes in her clients’ progress with this modality. Kristin’s theory is that small or large, a traumatic experience can have dramatic effects. The body doesn’t care how a situation looks from the outside, if the “Fight or Flight” response begins and isn’t soothed or rectified, long term crisis can occur. Physical assault, sexual trauma, serious illness or injury can cause post-traumatic stress symptoms that last for years and interfere with a healthy state of being. This lead to further study of how to integrate deep tissue work with emphasis on physiological processes combined with more subtle modalities that positively impact the energy of the body.
